lose their jobs. >> the evaluation system can be very biaseded to older teachers, and it can be very biased to inexperienced teachers. >> we suffered through poverty and gang violence and everything. and our kids have to be out of school that's the only safe haven they have right now. >> charter schools remain opened. >> 30,000 teachers and staff walking off the job so keep that in mind right now. nearly 400,000 students are not going to be going to class so it's a big issue. and it doesn't look like it will be resolved soon. >> that is a lot of teachers, 20,000 teachers? a lot of kid. >> the kid are thinking yes. i am out of school for the day and parents are like oh, boy. >> i don't think they will have to make the days up. >> i don't think so either. >> it will be interesting to see what pans out. >> and we will keep you posted and speak of interesting time for caption this. people give them a great caption. >> today's picture is very,

atmosphere clearly. so the camera itself is second hand. it's refurbished and i bought it off ebay. >> smart kid. he set it up from point and shoot camera and took every picture every ten seconds and photography in space those are his hobbies and his passions. someday he hopes to work for nasa. >> apparently burglary is a lot of hard work. look at this guy who tried toe hard to rip a place off and it left him exhausted. we will show you how he was caught sleeping.
